. one of those options from the u.n. secretary general was for him to actually send a u.n. force, u.n. blue helmeted soldiers going. what i think is interesting is he said that if he had to provide the troops, he wanted 6,000 troops on the ground. he said that if the situation on the ground was not per missive, and it you seems from everything we're seeing today it's not, he'd need 9,000, so compare the figure that he thought he needed to do the job, 9,000 to what they are going to be authorizing. some are concerned that the u.n. security council is offering a half measure here. >> compromise is being made on what is a very complex situation in an unstable african country. >> a very complex situation, one that's detearor rated since that coup earlier in the year. in many ways, i think observers believe the u.n. security council has been diverted by other crisis by what's, going on in the congress go and also what's been going on in mali. there are two seats still empty -- no, it's starting now, the security council is starting its meeting. >> we may well return to you as that meeting

existing u.n. resolutions and previous violations by iran of its international obligations, that we don't recognize such a right, and if, by the way, negotiations break down, there will be no additional international recognition that's been obtained. so this deal goes away and we're back to where we were before the geneva agreement, subject -- and iran will continue to be subject to all the sanctions that we put in place in the past and we may seek additional ones. but i think what we have said is we can envision a comprehensive agreement that involves extraordinary constraints and verification mechanisms and intrusive inspections, but that permits iran to have a peaceful nuclear program. now, in terms of specifics, we know that they don't need to have an underground, fortified facility like fordow in order to have a peaceful nuclear program. they certainly don't need a heavy-water reactor at arak in order to have a peaceful nuclear program. they don't need some of the advanced centrifuges that they currently possess in order to have a limited, peaceful nuclear program. and so the quest

kerry's assertion that a decade ago iran possessed only 164 centrifuges. we know from u.n. inspections and other analyses by late 2007 iran had some 3,000 centrifuges. over the course of george w. bush's final 12 to 15 months in the white house, iran likely added to but did not quite double its arsenal of centrifuges and thus had perhaps 5,000 installed at the beginning of 2009. >> to the muslim world we take a new way forward. >> reporter: since barack obama became president then iran has installed roughly 14,000 sent fujs, about 74 pers the total on hand. >> the majority has taken place under president obama's watch, correct? >> i'd have to check on the specific numbers. >> you're not prepared to dispute that statement? >> james, i think what we're focused on at this point is the fact that we're now at a point where we are halting and rolling back the progress of their program and we're working towards a comprehensive agreement to bring an end to it. >> reporter: the white house repeated today that sanctions drove iran to the negotiating table but as kerry himself said in the clip we
